Amendment of the Law (29 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: It is a specific, targeted group.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: State Pension Age (28 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: The Minister will be aware that it is increasingly difficult for women over the age of 50 to obtain employment. Given the later pension age that the Government are introducing and the changes in employment and support allowance, women who find it impossible to obtain jobs may find themselves with no financial support at all.

Glenda Jackson: To ask the Secretary of State for Education what funding he has allocated for level 2 apprenticeships in 2011-12 in the (a) London borough of Camden and (b) London borough of Brent.

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (10 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: It is not 5,000 people; it is 5,000 families.

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (10 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: I want to know the Minister’s evidence for believing that landlords in the private rented sector will lower their rents. That certainly was not the finding of the National Landlords Association, which I mentioned earlier in the debate. Surely it is dependent on whether there is an excessive amount of empty properties, which, in a constituency such as mine, or any in central London, is an...

Glenda Jackson: Will the Minister give way?

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (10 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: I did not make that point.

Glenda Jackson: Will the Minister give way?

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (10 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: Oh, I am most grateful to the Minister for giving way. The words “direct payment” never passed my lips and as I said in an earlier intervention, I would be grateful if the Minister could try to answer the questions that I put to him. Then there is the issue of why landlords are not renting to others outside the housing benefit sector. As I have pointed out, there is a growing trend that...

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (10 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: Where?

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (10 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: I just wondered whether the Minister had the shared accommodation figures, and why hard-working taxpayers are not offended by HMRC allowing people to have tax breaks when they let a room.

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (10 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeen South (Dame Anne Begg), who chairs the Select Committee on Work and Pensions, and other hon. Members who have contributed to the debate this afternoon. I must say to the Minister that the Government response to the Select Committee report adds insult to injury. The insult was the Government’s failure to give the House their response to...

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (10 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: On precisely that point, I, too, was somewhat disturbed by the Prime Minister’s absolute adumbration that such cases were the norm for people who claim housing benefit, so I tabled questions. We are talking about precisely 90 families, who are all in central London. They are all large families, usually from ethnic minority communities, who have come to this country because we offered them...

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (10 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: I have received a briefing from the Residential Landlords Association on that precise point. It says that in relation to a survey it conducted: “71% of respondents said that they would not decrease their rents. A recent study for the British Property Federation put this figure at 88%. Although the Government’s whole case is based on the assumption that this will happen our survey evidence...

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (10 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: There is another dimension to the problem that my local authority has raised with me. This is a period in which local authorities are strapped for cash and reducing staff, yet the changes will place greater burdens on them, which might extend the length of time required to make the discretionary decisions, making the people waiting for those decisions even more anxious and concerned.

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (10 Maw 2011)

Glenda Jackson: My hon. Friend lays her finger precisely on a constituency case that I had. The mother involved gave birth to her baby in the local hospital, the baby was ill and my constituent’s medical team would not allow her to take the baby back to where she had come from, as it was overcrowded, seriously damp and totally unsuited to a sick child. As a result, additional costs were laid on the...
